Hillcrest Christian College Teaching Job Vacancy in Australia

Located on 10 hectares of private, natural bushland, the College is situated in the elevated Hinterland just behind Burleigh Heads, with views to Surfers Paradise and the wider Gold Coast. After an extensive 2 year building program, we are now blessed with an incredible contemporary campus that provides an open and beautiful environment for each member of our community to enjoy and belong.

Hillcrest is a Christian College because Christian values and principles are modelled and encouraged by our staff. It is not a religious school in the traditional sense. We see education as holistic – striving for academic excellence in balance with the physical, creative, social and spiritual aspects of College life.

Hillcrest caters for Australian and International students enrolling from Prep to Year 12 on one campus. Kindy and Outside School Hours Care (before and after school care and vacation care) are also available to our families.

Hillcrests' renowned Gifted and Talented Program gives all students the opportunity to accelerate their learning. The IGNITE (Prep – 2) and FLARE (Years 3 - 6) programs are part-time enrichment projects for students identified as requiring extension in specialised subject areas. In Years 3 - 6 we offer full-time extension classes for those children identified in the highly gifted range who are at risk in mainstream classrooms.

The Honours Program (Years 10-12) gives students access to QCAA accredited Honours and Extension Mathematics and English courses, mentoring programs and access to study selected Bond University, University of Queensland, Griffith University and Southern Cross University subjects while in Year 12.

An extensive and affordable co-curricular program provides further opportunities for all students from Prep through to Year 12 to participate in activities outside of usual school hours, ranging from sport, debating, Duke of Ed, the arts, language and more. Our co-curricular program allows each child to explore a variety of activities to give them the opportunity to discover their interests and talents.

Hillcrest is renowned for its Excellence Choral and Basketball programs and mission focus.
